About Bishop's Peak:

Plenty of cracks, slab, face climbing for you here. Bouldering? We got bouldering. Trad? Check. Sport? Check. Top rope? Check. There aren't very many multi-pitch routes, but there are some fun challenges if you're in town. Weekend afternoons, this place is tres popular, so get there early or all the best routes will be taken.

If you're visiting and are looking to camp, there is a beautiful beachside area (Montana de Oro) fifteen minutes away in the town of Los Osos.

Nearest town or city: San Luis Obispo
Directions: From Highway 101, take the Santa Rosa (Hiway 1) exit and bear left (north) on Santa Rosa. Follow up to Highland drive light and west entrance to Cal Poly and turn left on Highland. Follow all the way up to the parking area and formal entrance. The main access trail begins at the turnaround at the end of Highland. Follow the trail and then the fire-road that it intersects past a large water tank to your left and through a "V" gate in the fence. With the exception of the lower boulders, this is the location where you'll branch off to the wall of your choice. Ta daaaaaaaaa.
